Our story starts with a 21-year-old CNA named Pete Hietpas. Pete was diligently working in eastern Wisconsin with a variety of staffing agencies, but something was missing. He loved caring for his patients, but felt that staffing agencies were exchanging compassion for competitiveness. He was determined to change that. As a result, he started Nurses PRN in 1995 to become a model for the healthcare staffing industry – being competitive in the marketplace, yet still maintaining a compassionate heart.
Over the years Nurses PRN grew and evolved as a nationwide healthcare staffing company, and therefore wanted to be more inclusive to all valued healthcare professionals: nurses, allied health, locum tenens, CNAs, and more. This lead to the introduction of PRN Healthcare, which is inclusive of Nurses PRN and all of our other healthcare divisions.
Our mission to create authentic, meaningful relationships with our healthcare professionals helps us set them up for success in their dream assignment, whether that be a travel contract, local contract, or per diem shift. This is all driven by the simple idea that better care for our healthcare workers, leads to better patient care – and this is all supported by a dedicated internal staff.
Our company culture is strongly backed by faith-based values and activities, to remind us that our success provides us the opportunity to serve and give back to our communities. This is the spirit of caregiving. This is PRN Healthcare.

After finishing my first assignment, I am beyond impressed with this agency. My recruiter, Phillip Herman is amazing! He constantly worked with me in finding the perfect first assignment. He is always available, attentive, knowledgeable, personable, and honest. He truly wants to best for each traveler. I would recommend Phillip and any other Nurses PRN team member. I look forward to many more assignments with Nurses PRN because of the amazing experience I’ve had.

Above and beyond does not even begin to describe the type of service that Phillip provided to me. He not only cared about my professional goals, but got to know me and my family through our conversations. Phillip and Nurses PRN truly looked at me as a person, not just a number.
